or section, or video subsequence, or whatever) that you've just hit.

I fail to understand how the linking element is a resource, but never
mind that.  What does "A processor may notice" mean, and what action
must, should, or may be taken by the processor upon such notice?

Separately, if we have documents that may grow by inclusion when
the user clicks on a link, we need a very sturdy concept of what
these documents are.  Just to dip a toe into the ocean, is the URL
of the document as displayed after I click on an INCLUDE link the
same as  the URL of the document before I clicked?  (If anyone
wants to take this up, it should have another thread title.)
